MedBen Employees Play Santa for Local Children

There's no reason why Santa Claus should have to do all the heavy lifting... which is why MedBen is once again happy to lend St. Nick a helping hand!

For 19 years in a row, MedBen is participating in the Families Helping Families program. Our employees raise funds and purchase presents to ensure that the less privileged children of Licking County (Ohio) share in the giving spirit of the holiday season.

Familes Helping Families gifts

Spearheaded by Licking County Job and Family Services (LCJFS) and coordinated by the Salvation Army, Families Helping Families provides gifts anonymously to more than 600 children in Licking County. Area businesses, churches, schools, clubs, families, and other groups all contribute to the program, which brightens the holidays for many elderly citizens as well.

This year, MedBen employees "adopted" 17 children ranging in age from 3 months old to 11 years, from lists provided through LCJFS as well as House of New Hope, which helps foster children. Each child receives clothing in addition to toys and other items that were on their wish list. MedBen contributes extra funds on top of the employee donations to buy additional gifts.

Families Helping Families is among the many charities and non-profit organizations MedBen has partnered with over the years. We've also been honored to support United Way, Food Pantry Network, Licking County Community Health Clinic, A Call to College, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and the Midland Theatre, to name just a few.

MedBen has called Licking Country home since 1938, and we've pleased to be able to assist the people of our community.

Individuals and groups who are interested in contributing to a future Families Helping Families drive are encouraged to contact LCJFS’s Jamie Spangler at 740-670-8736.
